First pioneered by Irene Burnside, Working with Older Adults: Group Process and Techniques is now in its Fourth Edition, with new editors and many new contributing authors. By combining interdisciplinary theory and practice, this book introduces students to group work theories, and explains how to modify general theory to meet the needs of older adults, including those who are contending with particular physical and cognitive disabilities. In easily accessible style, with numerous case studies in varying settings (hospitals, nursing homes, residential facilities, day centers, and home care), Working with Older Adults emphasizes group development, structure, process, and evaluating outcomes.
